Excess Water In Your Septic System Can Result In Septic Problems

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services regularly attend septic problems that could have been avoided if the property owner had better information and knowledge about how to ‘live’ in a home which has its own septic system and is not on town sewer. A mistake that many septic system owners make is to put too much water into the system. The decomposition process can become strained if there is too much excess water in the system, resulting in a variety of septic problems. Ideally, septic owners should only be using a maximum of 50 gallons of water per day, per person. The following averages for common household activities can help you keep track:

  • Dishwasher Cycle – 7 gallons
  • Washing Machine – 40 gallons per load (less with front-loader machines)
  • Toilet – 2 gallons per flush, 1.6 gallons for newer standard toilets
  • Shower – 2.5 gallons per minute (a 10 minute shower = 25 gallons)

It can be difficult to stay on top of usage, particularly for large families, but laying down some basic guidelines can help everyone to work together. New environmentally-friendly appliances, toilets and shower heads can help reduce usage without a lot of extra effort. A water meter can be helpful for households that feed off of a well. The government website http://www.energystar.gov also has a lot of helpful ideas and tips for reducing water usage.

Always remember that a septic system is installed based upon the number of people that are anticipated to be using it. If your base number increases, you might need to upgrade to a larger system.

We are providing a septic repair for a large family with a home in Rochester MA today and the root cause of their septic problems was that they were having a large laundry day once a week instead of spreading loads out over an entire week. This strained their system too much and has resulted in a repair being necessary. We have other septic repairs today in Raynham, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Swansea and Freetown MA. If you require a septic repair or if you have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton Office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://allclearseptic.com/education/

Heavy Use Of Garbage Disposals Can Result In A Septic Breakdown

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services are called out to customer properties on a regular basis to provide a septic repair when the septic breakdown could have been avoided if the property owner had better information on how to use their septic system. Today we have a septic repair appointment in Rochester MA which could have been avoided if the homeowner had been using their garbage disposal less frequently. One of the biggest problems for septic systems is a garbage disposal. Homeowners that have a septic system should avoid using their garbage disposal to prevent the introduction of unwanted solids into the system which can result in a septic breakdown. Even if your system is designed to accommodate a garbage disposal, it is important to use it moderately. Composting is an alternate solution for homeowners that have a large volume of vegetable waste. This is the reason that many homes with septic systems do not have a garbage disposal because it is difficult to monitor what is going into it and regulate the use. We have other septic repair appointments today in Norton, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Plainville and North Attleboro. If you require a septic repair or have any questions about your septic system please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Cesspool Services and Cesspool Replacement In Massachusetts

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that the word ‘cesspool’ does not conjure up pleasing images and if you are considering buying a property that word can certainly put a damper on some enthusiasm you might have for it. However with the proper maintenance a cesspool is not the problem that you may fear. A cesspool is a pit which acts as both a settling chamber for solids and a leaching system for liquids. In Massachusetts a cesspool is not always required to be replaced. Infact as stated on the Mas Gov website:

‘Only those cesspools that exhibit signs of hydraulic failure, are located extremely close to private or public water supplies, or otherwise fail to protect or pose a threat to public health, safety or the environment will need to be upgraded” For more information see:https://www.mass.gov/service-details/title-5-faq

However a cesspool does generally require more ongoing maintenance than a conventional septic system and the use of cesspools may overload the capacity of the soil to remove bacteria, viruses, and phosphorus, and to nitrify ammonia and organic nitrogen compounds. All Clear Septic and Wastewater services do provide property owners with cesspool services to ensure that they continue to operate correctly and efficiently. However if you decide to have you cesspool replaced we also have extensive experience with cesspool replacement. Today we have cesspool services and are starting a cesspool replacement in Wrentham, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Attleboro, Norton and Swansea MA. If you have questions about your cesspool or if you need a cesspool service or replacement please do contact our Norton Office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

We also have other septic repairs including a septic pump repair in Taunton, Freetown, Rochester and Rehoboth MA.

To Avoid Septic Problems and Septic Failure Dont Forget Septic Pumping Is Essential Maintenance

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that septic pumping does not sound (or smell) very appealing but is an essential part of septic system maintenance. Even if your septic system has been used correctly and is operating perfectly you will still always need to have it pumped, usually every 3-5 years. Although your septic system can treat effluent the build up of solid waste can not be avoided and will need to be pumped. If you leave it too long there will be unpleasant and sometimes unsafe septic problems that could lead to a total system failure. To avoid this have your septic system pumped regularly. Today we have septic pumping scheduled in North Attleboro, Attleboro, Norton, Raynham, Rehoboth, Dighton and Freetown MA. If you require a septic pump out or if you have any questions about septic pumping or septic systems please do contact our office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Services Have The Same Benefits As Car Services Because They Keep It Working Efficiently and Make Breakdowns Much Less Likely

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services know that car owners will often choose to have regular services on their cars to keep their vehicle working at optimum efficiency and to stay ahead of any repair work that might come up rather than be surprised at an inconvenient time and find that their car doesn’t work. For exactly these reasons we have many customers on service agreements for their septic systems. Again you want your system to be working efficiently and you definitely would rather have your system repaired before you have a breakdown which for septic systems can not only be inconvenient but also unpleasant, expensive and a large disruption, especially if it is a septic system that supports a business. For this reasons we have many commercial clients in addition to those with residential properties. We service many types of septic system including Singulair, FAST, Sand Filter, Fuji Clean and Jet Systems. Today we have septic services in Rehoboth, Seekonk, Swansea, Norton and Attleboro MA.

Septic Services On Many Types Of Septic System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services has been working in this region on septic systems for over 20 years. During this time we have worked with many different types of septic system and therefore gained knowledge and experience working on systems such as Singulair, FAST, Sand Filter, Jet System, Fuji Clean and many others. All Septic Systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. Like anything in your home your septic system must be maintained to ensure it keeps working correctly. If you do not want the worry of looking after your system or have a business and a septic failure would mean lost revenue it may be worth considering a septic service plan. We service many types of septic systems for our customers on quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on their system and the amount of use it gets. Today we have septic services scheduled in Rehoboth, Norton, Rochester, Seekonk, Freetown and Swansea MA. If you would be interested in a septic service or you have questions about your septic system or septic services specifically please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Septic Engineering Services Available including PERC Tests, Septic Design and Septic Improvements

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have trained septic experts who can assist property owners with their septic engineering requirements. We can assist with services to improve or repair your property such as soil evaluations, septic design and land use planning, septic improvements such as installation of risers, covers or filters and construction layouts for large or small commercial developments. Today we are conducting a soil evaluation for a customer in Attleboro MA. The soil evaluation will determine if the client’s building site is suitable for a conventional septic system and is typically called a “perc test’ or “perk test” (a percolation test). Traditional septic systems only work if the soil in the leach area is sufficiently permeable that it can readily absorb the liquid effluent flowing into it. Also, there must be sufficient ‘good’ soil from the bottom of the leach pipes to the rock or impervious hardpan below, or to the water table. Less commonly, a site can fail because the soil is too permeable, allowing the effluent to reach the groundwater before it is fully treated. Very steep slopes are also unsuitable for a conventional leach field. The specific standards vary from town to town, but any of these characteristics can prohibit the use of a standard gravity-fed septic system. All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services have extensive experience with various types of septic system so there are always alternative systems that can be used if the perc test does show some unfavourable results for a conventional system. We also have extensive experience with towns in this region so we know the individual requirements for different towns. We have other septic engineering appointments today in Norton, Rehoboth, Raynham and Dighton MA. If you would be interested in our septic engineering services or if you have any questions about septic engineering please do contact our Norton office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com

Voluntary Septic Inspections Give You An Assessment Of The Condition Of Your System

All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services conducts hundreds of septic inspections each year for property owners who are selling their home or business and are on town sewer. This is because in the state of Massachusetts a septic inspection is required:

“Within 2 years before a sale. If weather conditions prevent inspection at the time of a sale, the inspection must take place within 6 months afterward”

For more information see: https://www.mass.gov/guides/buying-or-selling-property-with-a-septic-system

However not all inspections that we carryout are for people who are selling a property. We have a voluntary septic inspection today for a property owner in Westport MA who wants to have a greater understanding of the condition of their septic system. As specified on the Mass Gov website:

“A system owner may choose voluntarily to have an assessment of the condition of the system even if there is no requirement for an inspection. Results of these voluntary assessments are solely for the use of the owner, and do not need to be submitted to local Boards of Health or MassDEP.”

We also have septic inspections today in Marion, Mattapoisett, Fall River, New Bedford and Rehoboth MA. If you require a septic inspection, for any reason, or if you have questions about your septic system please do contact us at our Norton Office on 508-763-4431 or visit http://www.allclearseptic.com
